Acrylic Pouring Paints
(Acrylic Pouring is also known as Fluid Art)
Durable pure acrylics for interior and exterior art. 25 strong, lightfast (non-fading) colours. These paints are specifically optimised for Pouring Art.
Medium body paints i.e. thicker than normal wall paint but not thick like heavy body paint in a tube. All colours in the range have the same viscosity (thickness) so for basic techniques you can pre-mix them all with the same ratios of Flow Control Medium and water.
LOW VOC and FORMALDEHYDE FREE
Using these paints in Acrylic Pouring
The strong colours make these products great for Acrylic Pouring Art. Use them together with our exceptional quality Flow Control Medium and Turbo-Cell or Non-Oily Cell Former. Start by mixing 1 part paint with 1 part Flow Control (by volume). This will give you the flow usually required for a flip-cup pour technique. Some pouring techniques require a higher flow (thinner paints or lower consistency) so to achieve this add a little water to increase the flow further as required. We suggest that you add water if you need to thin the paints further and don't add extra Flow Control Medium i.e. leave the Flow Control Medium at 1:1 with paint by volume.
All our other Permanent Paints (especially our Bright Neon UV, and Metallic Paints) are also great for acrylic pouring art and can also be purchased on this website. Metallic Paints should be used for highlighting and not usually on their own in acrylic pours. Our Metallic Paints are higher flow soft body paints so they may require less Flow Control Medium than 1:1.
About the pigments we use in this paint range
Artists love to know what pigments are used in their paints. They generally research their pigments and know which are lightfast and which are not. They also know pigment colours and how they behave when mixed with other colours. Some of our Marbling and Pouring Acrylic Paints are pure pigment paints while others are manufactured with pigment blends. We have selected only lightfast pigments that are suitable for archival quality art. A PDF called "Pigment Table" can be downloaded from this web page and it details the pigments we use in every colour. Simply by Googling the Colour Index number you will be able to read about each of the pigments we use.
- Cadmium based pigments are well known in many bright art paint colours including reds and yellows. We don't use any cadmium based pigments but our bismuth vanadate (lemon yellow) and diketo-pyrrolo pyrrole red and orange pigments are excellent, far more environmentally friendly substitutes.
- All our oxide colours are earthy. Some paint manufactures call the Red Oxide colour Venetian Red and the Yellow Oxide colour Yellow Ochre. Chrome Green Oxide is a dull green and an extremely natural colour well suited to African landscape scenes.
- We only have two colours that tend towards being pastel shades; Cerise Pink and Blaze Orange.
- Quinacridone Maroon is deeper and more blue than Quinacridone Magenta which has a brighter hue.
- Ultramarine Blue is a bright blue with a red undertone while Phthalo Blue is a little less bright and has a green undertone.
- Ultramarine Violet is a bright violet while Dioxazine Violet has a deep, powerful violet colour.
- In some colours we have blended pigments together with titanium dioxide to give the paints good opacity. While one would not do this for pure art paints, these blended pigment paints give good results in Acrylic Pouring.
